There I was today, pushing my cart around the food store, when this sharp pain stabbed me in the cervix/vagina area. It took my breath away for a few seconds. A few minutes later, it happened again. And again ? the whole time I was shopping. It was quite intense. I had to concentrate on keeping my face relaxed so the other shoppers didn't see me grimacing and get nervous. When I got in the car and sat down, it stopped.
So when I got home, I googled it and came up with the lovely term, "lightning crotch." Apparently, it's the baby's head bumping against my cervix. So, I guess she dropped. Anyone else experience this? How soon after the baby drops does one generally go into labor? I'm 34 weeks. Am I going to get lightning crotch every time I walk until I deliver? Egad!
